The road to the CrossFit Games begins with the CrossFit Open. It's pretty awesome because CrossFit athletes from all over the world perform the same workouts. These workouts are released on Thursday evening and we have until Monday evening to submit our scores.
5 snatches* (85 / 55 lb.)
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
50 wall balls
200 single unders
I didn't think that I would get beyond one round of this WOD. I do not have a lot of practice with single unders, and 200 reps seemed like an insurmountable task. I got through 1 round and did an additional 41 wall balls. I left this workout feeling extremely proud of myself.

Like the Open WOD before this one, I did this one after a weekend of traveling. I had gone to LAurel Maryland, to a seminar by Elisabeth Akinwale and on this Sunday had flown back and sat on a film discussion panel. My arms were pretty tired!
This last workout had no time cap, and because of that, I was worried about how I'd do. I did the workout in 17:18.
